For Democrats V is for Vichy

 

Q: What is the difference between a Republican and a DLC Democrat?

A: The DLC Democrat at least has the courtesy to use a dab of KY during a good ass-fucking. 

 

Is there to be any return to national sanity before the Rapture Bus that we are all trapped upon makes it’s final Evel Knievel ‘Snake River’ style jump off of the end of the cliff into the abyss? George W. Bush and his neocon death cult have the doors locked and the pedal to the metal and this is largely possible due to the appeasement and enabling of the reactionary Jacobins by the corrupt, malodorous and impotent so-called opposition party. I am hereby issuing a blanket denouncement of every fucking slimy, feckless, Vichy scoundrel with anything to do with the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC). They must be eradicated at all costs in order to regain control and reimplement progressive American values and there is no better place to start than with whiny little neocon tool Joe Lieberman who wears his sense of entitlement like a crown.

The removal of both the Republican party and their DLC enablers is absolutely crucial for the drive to take back America from the relentless, ruthless thugs now running the place like a crime syndicate. The apparent merger between the DLC and the GOP is like the Sopranos and the Corleones launching a joint venture. If done correctly this fall -starting with Lieberman-then 2008 will become an opportunity to launch a coordinated drive to take back American once and for all and hold the thieves and thugs accountable for their criminal actions.

Never under the DLC which has hijacked the Democratic party will things ever be set right, if one thing that they have proven to be capable of doing well it is wearing the mantle of LOSER and it will only continue as long as corporate cash continues to be the lifeblood for the D.C. elitist wing of the party. Yet another great example of the cave in to right-wing Republican pressure to
recently pull an ad featuring flag draped coffins because they were charged by the GOP goon squad with politicizing the war. Feckless losers they shall always be under the leadership of the DLC and Rahn Emanuel’s DCCC. How did the venerable and virtuous Republican slime machine respond? They immediately ran an ad exploiting 9/11, a bread and butter tactic that has been used by Karl Rove’s minions while there were still bodies being pulled from the rubble of the twin towers and the stench of rotting human flesh hung in the air. The target of the ad, Ohio Representative Sherrod Brown who is running for Senate was accused of being soft on terrorism and would weaken America’s security. This tactic is particularly galling because the DLC stuck a shiv into the back of Iraq war veteran Paul Hackett who would have had immunity against such dastardly Rovian swift boat style attacks by taking down his run for the same seat by throwing their weight behind Brown.

Republican Mike Dewine was forced to pull the ad not because of it’s slander and fear mongering but because the image of the burning WTC in the background had been doctored. Why does the DLC continue to play the game as if there are any rules when their opponents don’t? That is the million dollar question. The piss poor losers of the DLC are dead men walking, and don’t even know it yet.

Joe Lieberman IS the DLC…..and that is the main reason why Joe must GO.

The DLC has been circling the wagons in defense of the highly visible Lieberman, a man who despite hitting the trifecta through his alliances with the Bush administration, AIPAC and the corporate pigs clustered around the feeding trough is facing the fight of his life against Ned Lamont, the first true test as to the effectiveness of the netroots insurgency. The two pronged effort to paint the netroots as extremists who would drag the Democratic party to the left (that it would a monumental task to drag it far enough left to even get back to Reaganism is left out, god forbid that we have context) is bogus but a work in progress, we will see how effective that it is next Wednesday. A good op ed in the Houston Chronicle last week summed it up nicely:

Lieberman’s message is whiny with a selfish threat of bolting the Democrats to run as an independent in November if he loses the primary. The Connecticut incumbent looks more and more like he’s ready to retire. Lamont is exactly what the Democrats need to revitalize their party — a young entrepreneur with ideas who is itching to take on Washington and the Republicans.

Connecticut Democrats have a real chance to restore the Democratic Party to its progressive and populist roots on Aug. 8. Bouncing Lieberman from the Democratic ticket will send shock waves across the Democratic Party and the nation.

Connecticut voters are in a position to do what Senate Democratic Whip Durbin has failed to do — insist that the opposition party start acting like one.

That message will not only be felt in Connecticut and Washington but also serve as a wake-up call for certain 2008 presidential candidates — especially a pro-war Democratic senator from New York named Hillary Clinton.


Also the July 24 edition of the New Yorker blamed Lieberman’s unpopularity not only on his constant licking of Bush’s boots and support of the war but even took it back to his attacks on Bill Clinton over Monicagate, this is great regarding a speech on the Senate floor delivered by the whiny little fucker:

“It was an exceedingly pompous performance, in which the Senator expressed his “deep disappointment and personal anger” at President Clinton for his sad, furtive affair with a White House intern and deplored the “impact on our democracy and its moral foundations.”

In the same article this great passage is attributed to one of the Senator’s constituents:

In the Congress, in the press, and on the networks, the righteous grandstanding creeps, crazy to blame, deplore and punish, were everywhere out moralizing to beat the band: all of them in a calculated frenzy with what Hawthorne (who, in the 1860’s, lived not many miles from my door) identified in the incipient country of long ago as “the persecuting spirit”; all of them eager to enact the astringent rituals of purification that would excise the erection from the executive branch, thereby making things cozy and safe for Senator Lieberman’s ten-year-old daughter to watch TV with her embarrassed daddy again.

And this guy is supposed to be a Democrat? The bastard has ALWAYS been a duplicitous double dealing charlatan. Hell, I wouldn’t doubt if he were a mole that purposely assisted in sabotaging Al Gore’s 2000 presidential campaign.

And the DLC honchos were all a mile high in Denver where they gathered to preach the gospel of a pro-corporate, pro-globalist Democrat party and to pay homage to the great Joe. Former First Lady and Queen in waiting Hillary Rodham she of Walmart legal big-gun and more recently New York Senatorial fame actually and astonishingly addressed the economic disparity issue, more likely out of necessity to steal the issue from the progressive netroots and potential primary opponent John Edwards than for any principled reason:

“They’re not taking care of America. They’re bankrupting our country and failing to address the problems”



Said Senator Rodham Clinton, wagging a finger in the face of the Bush administration and the crony capitalists. There is one problem though, the DLC are a large part of the problem and will only provide window dressing rather than to get to the true root of the problem that is a global system of corporatism and a domestic economy that is solely driven by financial speculation. We are over-indebted, disproportionately over-taxed, grossly unsophisticated, underemployed, our manufacturing base has been decimated by two and a half decades of corporate plundering, our jobs are being shipped offshore by the thousands, the housing bubble is ready to burst thereby ending the refinancing that allows millions of Americans to rob Peter to pay Paul, our infrastructure is crumbling due to the lack of reinvestment by the greedy, global warming is a reality and energy costs are eating us alive and we are involved in a series of costly and ruinous foreign wars that will drive the country into bankruptcy.

Add to that a very angry and militant portion of the population that has been ensnared by the gospel of hate and hellfire preached by GOP co-opted charlatans disguised as ministers and who are ready to rumble and you have a tinderbox waiting to have a match put to it. The party power brokers and beltway elitists have waited too long to address this, choosing to instead fuck around with the phony ‘Culture of Corruption’ public relations campaign that went up in smoke about the same time that Representative William Jefferson was found with $90,000 stashed in his freezer. The sudden focus of the DLC on economic disparity is nothing more than a desperate effort to remain entrenched as the status quo.

The New York Times this weekend threw in their two cents by endorsing Ned Lamont over the wandering Jew I am sure that the keening from state run media will be intense with more threats and smears of ‘treason’ being leveled against the NYT and the inconvenient fact that Joe’s favorite team just took out a house full of civilians, many of them children couldn’t have come at a wore time for the neocon advocate of the implementation of the PNAC plan in the Middle East. It was his unwavering support for the Bush-Cheney-Rummy’s Iraq quagmire that got him into this mess to begin with and despite his sunny side up ‘things are getting better’ party-line parrotting of the Bushist propaganda machine the bombs continue to go off and the morgues continue to overflow. Lieberman’s wars are about to claim his scrawny ass as well.

These are desperate times for the DLC with Lieberman apparently on the ropes so look for an escalation in rhetoric this week. The little weasel himself even said in addressing another issue that much to the chagrin of Republican propagandist Frank Luntz the public hasn’t forgotten:

“It’s time for politicians to let Terri Schiavo rest in peace.”

Strange words from a man who joined the flock of vultures like Tom DeLay, Bill Frist, Randall Terry, Mark Fuhrman and every other sleazy, amoral reprobate who kicked the poor woman around like a political football and incited hordes of rubber fetus waving religious zealots to descend on the Florida hospice with no regard for the suffering of the others who were being kept there. Little Joe must have gotten nervous when Michael Schiavo showed up to join the campaign against him.

Paybacks are a motherfucker aren’t they? Joe may be about to find out first hand.

Do you want to see people devoted to the concept of democracy? Look south to Mexico where thousands are taking to the streets to protest a rigged election. Where was John Kerry on that cold November 2004 Wednesday morning when evidence was emerging on Ohio voting irregularities and potential electoral fraud? Did he hold out for a recount….no he listened to his weasel DLC consultants and threw in the towel.

Democracy is for peasants, we have American Idol.

July Motherfuckers

 

“A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world”

Albert Camus 

The long anticipated (at least by some) ferocious coordinated pushback against the ‘netroots’ by both DLC and GOP establishment forces began in earnest over the last couple of weeks. The blogosphere was specifically targeted by party line pundits from the drug addled champion of ‘values’ Rush Limbaugh to the DLC’s own shill Ed Schultz who loosed their condemnation. In a rare display of bipartisanship it was imperitive to impugn the credibility of one of the few remaining bastions of free speech that dares to sing in an off tone in relation to the rest of the madhouse choir. The mainstream media is our enduring national shame for it is a media overly obsessed with child killers like Andrea Yates, the mysterious Suri Cruise and in circling the wagons for talking point defenses of the right of Israel to lay waste to its neighbors using American-made bombs than engaging in serious investigative journalism or any sort of honest introspection over what has caused things to have gone so horribly wrong with this country in the first place. The citizens are in a funk , policy is set by sociopaths, crooks and amoral thugs, war is now spreading throughout the world and we as a nation have strayed so far off the course of acceptable moral behavior that the point of no return may be soon appearing on the horizon.

After a much needed although too very brief vacation, The Station is once again transmitting and we couldn’t have returned at a better time; especially now that the blogosphere itself is under siege and its very legitimacy is being called into question by charlatans and pimps. I personally have been attacked by right and left-wingers alike who are unified in both their ignorance as well as their savagery, their mutual hatred of any independent voice or thought is possibly the only thing that they have in common though they would be loathe to ever admit it. Of all the vitriolic denunciations, spam and hateful diatribes that stuffed my inbox the one that I particularly got a kick out of was from some pathetic right-wing loser’s website that was incredibly enough called I ♥ Ann Coulter. With a title like that there is no need for further explanation. I would be willing to bet that the guy’s ‘Godless’ cover shot of the harlot of hate has been adorned with a ‘pearl necklace’ on more than one occasion….hope that he spent the extra dough for the special commemorative laminated edition.

Additionally, my frequent usage of the term fascism to describe the rulers of our de facto one party government was called into question as to its legitimacy in describing modern domestic politics so please allow me the opportunity to present the very definition of ‘fascism’ taken directly from an authority on the English language – The Miriam Webster Dictionary:

Main Entry: fas·cism
Pronunciation: ‘fa-“shi-z&m also ‘fa-“si-
Function: noun
Etymology: Italian fascismo, from fascio bundle, fasces, group, from Latin fascis bundle & fasces fasces
Often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.


I say that if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then chances are that it truly is a fucking duck. What was omitted from this definition though was the union between the government and big business which gets it’s own definition in the dictionary under Corporatism:

Main Entry: cor·po·rat·ism
Pronunciation: ‘kor-p(&-)r&-“ti-z&m
Function: noun
: the organization of a society into industrial and professional corporations serving as organs of political representation and exercising control over persons and activities within their jurisdiction



Now depending on which reference that you use both of these are often combined under the blanket term Fascism which when you take into consideration each and every aspect of the system as it is in the era of George W. Bush’s America we are already there. The administration and it’s legal army is moving even as you read this to subvert the recent ruling of the high court in Hamdan v.Rumsfeld that for at least a fleeting moment slapped down the right of the U.S. executive branch to act as king and to imprision without trial and torture at will. The Bushists are also now moving to rewrite the rules to allow for the legitimizing of illegal wiretapping and surveillance of American citizens which will be approved usual by the rubberstamp Congress and if the language isn’t exactly to the liking of the Cheney master plan then Bush will just use another one of those signing statements that his goons are so fond of.

Once again, if it walks like a duck……..

The MSM and even most liberal bloggers are loathe to utter the dreaded ‘F word’ as a descriptive term but those who choose not to see that the lasting trend has been a slow and then post-9/11 more rapidly accelerating tract towards fascism then they are either plain dumb or in denial and more than likely a bit of both. I will however add that while it is fascism it is a softer version of it – at least for now but this could rapidly change if the neocons and their bellicose Zionist allies are able to successfully escalate the chaos in the Middle East into full blown regional and optimally civilizational war. If Dick Cheney and the neocons get their wish an early Christmas present will be a domestic terrorist attack that will allow the implementation of every Draconian, authoritarian aspect of the latest version of the USA PATRIOT Act. Then there will be a grand opening of the KBR Detention Camp franchise and time for the black vans to commence their pickup routes but that time the least of our worries will be attacks on the free speech zone of the blogosphere or quibbling over our definitions of fascism.

Besides, that’s not the point of this posting. Because we are back and we are badder than ever.

Our policy here is that we will NEVER endorse political candidates! This is not only our policy out of principle but also because of laws that could be invoked were any sort of preferential treatment might be misconstrued as free advertising. Our view is that we are far more concerned with the issues, the corruption of the entire fucking system and the sickening fact that relatively speaking most of the candidates are pretty much interchangeable when it really comes down to it. In order to survive to emerge from the filtering process to even be allowed to run for public office with a party sanction you have already been compromised. The DLC is known for conducting screenings so that only the most pro-corporate agenda potential candidates are able to emerge. We prefer to call a spade a spade and don’t engage in the practice of turd polishing or practicing porcine cosmetology. If we happen to attack some politicians or public figures more vehemently and viciously than others it is not because we find them to be shining examples of virtue, they just happen to be bigger whores with more vile clients than the others.

Besides, as far as endorsements are concerned there are plenty of blogs out there with no such qualms that engage in becoming involved in the actual political business. Many of them are the so-called ‘A List Blogs’ that like to believe that they carry a large degree of clout. Personally, I would prefer to keep a lower profile and not have to compromise my own sense of values or risk becoming contaminated by the taint of getting too close to the actual workers in the great Washington D.C. sausage factory. It is far better to fly low, not worry about self censorship or compromise and leave the politicking to those who truly have a taste for it. There are plenty of writers/activists who are far more enamored with attention, influence, some small degree of mainstream media acceptance and the possibility of occasionally being invited to lavish parties thrown by the ambitious where they can act like the pretentious bores that they are while trolling for pussy, munching on crudites and sucking down free booze that the world sure as hell doesn’t need another one.
Our sole purpose in life is to attack the system rigging bastards where they live and to expose the hypocrites and charlatans that have sold out American values, values that are based upon having a strong middle class and progressive social programs such as those championed by men like Franklin D. Roosevelt – now THERE was a Democrat! Without the desolation and desperation created by the job destroyers on Wall Street and their lackeys in the White House, Congress and the Pentagon there would be no bloodthirsty, Social Darwinist, fascist (there’s that fucking F-word again) menace laying waste to our country both within and outside of our borders. Now that the duplicitous pig-fuckers in the DLC have entered into an alliance with the Rovians and that other country that wags the dog while engaging in dispicable acts of violence against civilians as they wage war against their overflowing enemies list it’s time to throw down.
Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post’s latest column entitled ‘Liberals and Israel’ virtually screams that left leaning bloggers are not only cowardly by not engaging in debate about the overkill in Lebanon (Markos M. of Da Kos is specifically singled out for staying out of it) but also telegraphs the strategy of the soon to be unleashed barrage of accusations of anti-Semitism that will be used by both the Rovians and the Clintonites to smear progressives and The New Republic, that piece of shit neocon-lite rag is also making noises in launching personal attacks on netroots bloggers.
Of course here at the Station we are all too happy to call a spade a spade, know the difference between a Jewish person and the Israeli government, hate the very concept of ‘political correctness’ and are officially on record as saying that the politicians on both sides of the aisle of the whorehouse in Washington are not only in bed with Israeli lobby doing the nasty thing for the lifeblood of campaign support (financial and otherwise) but also ensuring that they get protection from the hordes of activists. The 400+ members of Congress who officially went on record to pledge their loyalty to a foreign government over their own are not only the most vile of traitors but their actions are enabling war crimes that further isolate this country from the rest of the world. Where is the outrage over the shipments of bombs that are being sent to Israel on the sly via the backdoor to drop on the poor women and children and others who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time? Where is the MSM coverage of this attrocity? Where is the DLC outrage? Who gives a rat’s ass about collateral damage!
We Do! And We Are Goddamned Proud Of It Too!

 

I will address this in my next posting but first a word on the DLC.
The Democratic Leadership Council is a bunch of feckless, despotism enabling, Israeli Lobby worshipping, corporate lackeys who are perfectly content to go down in flames over social wedge issues as long as the status quo can be maintained and the debate over fairness to the American worker doesn’t surface. We here at The Station are strictly Joe Six Pack type of guys and are fucking pissed that we are now having to drink cheap swill due to the fact that it costs more to gas up the car to drive to our shitty fucking jobs every day, to keep being gouged by the power pirates who have taken over the public utilities, to keep paying more to the racketeers of the insurance industry whose economic terrorism comes with the full blessing of their bought politicians and especially pissed at ignorant peckerwood morons and the lemming members of the Christo Fascist zombie brigade who continue to dissemble while ‘New Rome’ burns. We are among the millions who struggle to keep food on the table to feed our families and raise our children who are being turned into the future debt slaves that will be necessary to feed the financial industry. The children have bleak futures due to the looting and corruption of the special interests, they lack the skills to compete for increasingly scarce ‘good jobs’ due to the shitty education that is provided by a public school system beseiged by influential theocrats and privatizers.
Now the DLC and their acolytes puff up their chests and for the first fucking time in over five fucking years of hell goes into attack mode against the blogosphere. Where was this coordination and fire in your bellies while you let Bush and his rubberstamp fascist GOP Congress run fucking roughshod? Where were Hillary’s temple eunuchs while we were all getting whipped like cringing dogs by the bullies who run the circus who are the Chivas sipping, Lexus driving, Wall Street Journal reading, lobster bisque sucking elitists who call the shots in the ‘Class War’ that is the elephant in the living room in America in our fear drenched, Jesus juicing, new Gilded Age of the post 9/11 world where:
EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT NOW!

 

The DLC is far worse than the existing tyrannical one-party rulership of the GOP and their smirking idiot king at 1600 Pennsylvania. They are worse because they represent the falsehood that there is such a thing as a true opposition party in this country. As a Marxist acquaintance once told me (not that I am a Marxist by any means, I believe in American capitalism although it needs to be strongly regulated to keep the greedballs from looting, raping and pillaging) that the parties as they exist today are nothing other than warring factions of the same corrupt capitalist system and he is absolutely correct. When you judge them by their deeds rather than their words and it becomes very apparent that this is so. When after all was the last time that the Democratic party actually stood for protecting labor which was the true left prior to the period when the think tanks were a dominant force and were able to successfully parlay the alleged statements of an unnamed Democrat in a Robert Novak column that anti-war Nixon opponent George McGovern stood for “Acid, Amnesty and Abortion”.
 

The DLC was born out of the Reagan years when the elitists latched onto the concept that it was easier to go along to get along and joined the anti-labor gang along with other so-called ‘Reagan Democrats’, other than a brief interlude of Republican Lite with the Ross Perot assisted serendipity of the Clinton administration it has been one long ongoing purgatory of being tarred as pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, anti-family and un-patriotic ever since then for the jackass party. By aligning themselves with the corporations and the wealthy on economic and trade issues they sold their souls to the company store along with millions of Americans who have been crushed by the war on labor and the plague of outsourcing.

They being the establishment DLC are a pox upon America and represent an impediment to the vital systemic reforms and ideological changes that are necessary for this nation to once again be a place where each and every citizen has an opportunity to realize their dreams. It is also imperative that our disastrous foreign policy misadventures be changed immediately so as to remove the animosity towards America that breeds terrorism and turns the lesser fortunate members of the world into nothing more than cheap slave labor with which to keep profits up for the treasonous looters of Wall Street and the ultra-rich elites who have stolen democracy from the people like the Grinch himself descended upon ‘Whoville’ to load up his sled with pilfered goods and abscond under the cover of darkness only these cheapjack fucks won’t be returning when they suddenly grow a heart.

In real life there are no fairy tale endings.
This isn’t a game for the squeamish.
As Clint Eastwood (A great American director whose recent movies are excellent and enduring pieces although he first had to pay his dues by playing Dirty Harry and similar cardboard cut out tough guy archetype roles for years) said in the classic ‘The Outlaw Josey Wales’:

“Now remember, things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is.”

Josey Wales was a serious motherfucker and he won AND lived!

The Clintons are serious motherfuckers as are their partners The Bushes!

AIPAC and the Israeli Lobby are serious motherfuckers!

Dick Cheney, David Addington, Rummy and the neocons are serious motherfuckers!

The corporatists are serious motherfuckers!

The religious right are serious motherfuckers!

Karl Rove is a serious motherfucker!

And I am a serious motherfucker too!

The Question Is: ARE YOU?
